Many years for the feast-day of the equal-to-the-apostles saints Constantine and Helen! May they intercede to God for us! Last year, due to COVID restrictions, our yearly 'Sailing to Byzantium' was held virtually and one of the talks was by Dr Mario Baghos who spoke about 'Saints Constantine and Helen and the Dawn of Byzantium.' We are pleased to share this video again with you on the day we celebrate saints Constantine and Helen in the Orthodox Church.
Also, please see an article by Dr Baghos which describes the historical background to the standard representation of the saints in the Orthodox Church -- where Constantine and Helen stand on either side of the cross of Christ -- that was just published in the English VEMA website.
